Ablative CO2 laser skin treatment has remained the gold standard in skin laser treatment resurfacing since the 1990s. It is still used to today for more severe wrinkles, sun damage and scars.

Unlike the Fraxel Repair, the fully ablative CO2 laser results in complete removal of the upper layer of skin resulting in longer healing times and increased side effects. Today, this technology is generally only used in areas of the most severe damage—like around the mouth area—rather than full face.

The CO2 laser also delivers heat to the tissue, which causes collagen to contract, producing visible tightening of the skin. In some patients, this effect of laser resurfacing may complement or even replace more invasive procedures such as facelifts.

The erbium laser may also be used for resurfacing. Erbium resurfacing may be used for mild sun damage. It is also used for resurfacing of the neck and chest. Dr. Tadros serves great success using a layered technique for resurfacing.

This laser light wavelength penetrates deeply to stimulate collagen, treat wrinkles and tighten the skin in the deep dermal layer. The second workhorse in this non invasive laser treatment or ablative energy-based systems is Erbium: YAG laser technology. Erbium: YAG laser treatment NJ, treats the epidermis, removes pigmentation and dyschromia from the superficial layer of skin and improves skin texture.

Historically, laser treatment patients have shied away from ablative skin resurfacing because of long recovery times (months) and significant risks associated with old-fashioned procedures. Modern day ablative laser treatment systems offer comparable results through a fractionated technology that allows for recovery within days.

The method improves healing and reduces post-operative redness. The erbium laser is then used to carefully sculpt away the edges of acne scars and deep wrinkles for enhanced results.
